C.A.B. Cuttings Scrapbook

Welcome to the cuttings scrapbook featuring many scans of C.A.B from magazines. You can click on any image for a larger sized scan.

We have managed to gather some of the listings from the TV Times and Lookin magazines from when C.A.B was broadcast in the UK. The TV times had many images of the programme during the three series including one from the very first episode - check out how they billed the show: "a new series packed with adventure".

We have now got 25 of the 33 episode synopsis listings from the TV Times - only eight to go! These synopsis are listed in full in the series section.

We have also got a few variations with scans from the TV Times from different regions, if there is an alternate image there will be a link below the first scan. If we are able to get any further scans of the TV Times, Lookin or other magazines we will add them here as soon as possible.
